Prior to formally engaging AFIL—either as a full-scope client or simply for a consultation—no PNC shall have direct telephone or email access to an attorney. To be successful, Sales and Client Relations must be articulate, client-oriented, and responsive to client calls/emails. Additionally, Sales and Client Relations must understand (or learn) how to use Clio, Mycase, workspace email software.
Sales and Client Relations reports to Managing Attorney with respect to all professional activities and all issues concerning his or her relationship with AFIL.

- Assess all new PNCs to AFIL, and determine based on objective and subjective criteria which of these AFIL should offer to retain.

- Ensure that all PNCs for whom we decline representation receive a “Rejection of Matter” email or, where no email was provided, a “Rejection of Matter” telephone call from the Receptionist.

- Prepare a weekly report to Managing Attorney to reflect any firm that has referred clients to us summarizing the status of all referrals.
- Follow firm prescribed guidelines on how to communicate with PNCs in the most effective manner; collect information about the PNCs and the matters for which they are seeking AFILs help; assure the PNCs that AFIL’s attorneys and staff will be able to help them; show compassion for their troubles, and explain how AFIL can improve their lives.
- In accordance with the ethical rules governing lawyers, Sales and Client Relations shall not provide legal advice but shall otherwise manage all aspects of converting PNCs to clients.
- Stay in contact with PNCs who do not retain us after their initial consultation to keep the door open for them to retain us when they are ready.
